Centre Principal, North Kensington

Morley College London seeks to champion equality, celebrate diversity, and create an inclusive learning and working environment. Key to its core values are the principals of FREDIE. These are: Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion, and Engagement. The College aims to have a workforce that is as reflective of the diverse population that it serves and particularly encourages applications from women, ethnic minorities and disabled people who are currently under-represented within the College at this level.

Established in 1889, and with its roots stretching back some years before that, Morley College London is one of the country's oldest and largest specialist providers of adult education. Whether studying for personal development and well-being, to gain essential skills (ESOL, English, Maths, IT), to access higher education, or for career development or change, the continued vision at Morley is for its students' ambitions to be inspired and achieved through learning. In February 2020, Morley merged with Kensington and Chelsea College (KCC), and now serves over 10,000 students from across London and beyond over three campus centres: North Kensington, Chelsea, and Waterloo.

Following successful appointments last year to the Centre Principal positions at both the Waterloo and Chelsea campuses, Morley College London is now seeking a Centre Principal to provide inspiration, vision and effective day to day management of the centre in North Kensington, ensuring that the College’s core offer – learning and teaching - is continually responsive to the needs of the students, communities and employers the College Centre serves. The appointed candidate will be an experienced educational leader with a passion for community engagement and a fundamental belief in the transformative power of education. This will suit an individual with strengths in curriculum development who is looking for a challenging role with significant scope for impact in service of a richly diverse community.

The deadline for receipt of applications is midday (GMT) on Friday, 26 February 2021.

For an informal conversation about the role, please feel free to reach out to Kerry Wallace (kerry.wallace@society-search.com) at Morley’s executive search partner Society.

Applications should consist of a CV, accompanied by a brief covering letter (no more than two sides of A4) addressing the criteria in the Person Specification. The candidate information pack and application portal can be found via Society’s website via the apply link
